America Looks Abroad was a 15-minute news and commentary show produced by the nonpartisan American Foreign Policy Association (FPA.org) and broadcast on NBC. ...sounds boring but this show aired 1939 through May of 1941 (according to Otrpedia), which was when the USA was grappling with neutrality, lend lease etc. so.... Hindsight is 20/20.

Through Partisan Eyes - "If only those (insert political party here) would negotiate we could end this government shutdown." Chances are you've heard, or even said, this statement in the past week, with both Democrats and Republicans taking the blame.

Biography in Sound was an hour-long documentary radio program that was produced and broadcast in the 1950s. It's one of the best examples of radio excellence - the production is exemplary and I find every episode to be compelling. It's one of my favorites; I don't understand why it isn't more well known! Each episode featured multiple guests, who often were peers or friends of the person who was the featured subject. For example, the show on Hemingway features Mickey Spillane, Gary Cooper, Al...

ARCHIVE NUMBER: PZ0047.01 Guns, Weapons: The Right to Bear Arms. Ten of thousands of people are killed every year in the United States by guns. Hundreds of thousands are wounded. Countless others are threatened by them. Are all these deaths and injuries the price we must pay to preserve our constitutional right to bear arms? Or does the Second Amendment only guarantee that right to a specifically organized militia? Produced by David Selvin. Executive Produced by Adi Gevins.
